Meet Paulina, a beautiful, self-assured African teen who has her mind set on becoming the next Miss Universe. The reigning “Queen Bee” at Ghana’s most sought after boarding school was confident she’d slay her opponents and win the crown until… Meet Ericka, a new student arriving from the USA. She has undeniable natural talent and beauty that captures the attention of the pageant recruiter and Paulina’s once loyal friends. Mayhem ensues in this biting comedy that explores cultural biases facing teenage girls across the globe.
